This tour is for those who have experiencce of sup and gives you the chance to discoveer the wilder and more spectacular shores of Lake Garda directly beneath Mount Rocchetta.
The Rocchetta group forms a striking backdrop on the right-hand shore of Lake Garda. Steep rock walls soar from water level to over 1000 metres, giving Garda Trentino the air of a Nordic fjord. This tour allows you to explore the base of the rock wall as far as Punta Sperone, a rocky bluff sticking out into the lake which hides one of the oldest forts in the old Austro-Hungarian defence system. Garda Trentino was the southernmost border of the empire and guarded as an important strategic position. Just above the lake, you can make out the Ponale Trail which winds up the rock face, dotted here and there with biking and hiking enthusiasts.
Watch outl! In high winds you are advised to sttay at a safe distance from the cliff because of the danger of falling rocks.
In any case it is advisable to take this tour accompanied by a qualified instructor.
Keep a close eye on the rock face: you might see some climbers on the rock just above the water!
